Connect to your vision and create a plan for action with this complete digital planning and productivity system for your iPad! This planner is packed with extras including bonus template pages, annual trackers, custom sections, a sticker collection, and an embedded goal setting process.
Just getting started? This email series will walk you through all the basics of digital planning. I'll also send you a free one week sample planner and sticker set so you can get some hands-on practice as you learn!
Digital planning recreates the experience of using a paper notebook or planner right on your iPad or tablet device. It gives you the same freedom and flexibility you have on paper with the convenience of working digitally - it truly is the best of both worlds!
You can use these files on a standard desktop or laptop computer, but a tablet and stylus allow you to recreate the "pen and paper" feel by handwriting your notes.
There are a ton of different apps to choose from depending on your specific tablet device. You can read more here to learn about app options.
The file itself is what gives you all the organization and layouts for your new planner or notebook.

Digital planning merges the open-ended creativity of paper with the convenience of the digital world. Your digital planner will be delivered to you as a file that can be imported into any PDF markup app. Essentially, you can think of it as the "next generation" paper planner - a digital version that has been created specifically for use on a tablet device within a PDF markup app such as GoodNotes or Noteshelf.
To use a digital planners/notebook you will need:
1. Tablet device
2. A stylus or Apple Pencil
3. PDF markup/annotation app
(e.g. Goodnotes, Notability, Xodo, Noteshelf)
You CAN use these files on a PC in the Xodo app or on a Mac computer in the GoodNotes 5 app. However, I recommend using my digital planners and notebooks primary on a tablet device with a stylus. This will give you an experience that is most similar to pen and paper and really maximizes the benefits of using this type of planner.
I do access my planner on both my iPhone and Mac computer as well, but I don't do the majority of my planning/note taking on these devices.
If you want to test a planner out on your specific device/app of choice, you can receive a free planner sample through my Intro to Digital Planning email series.
Unfortunately these types of planners don't work in OneNote or Evernote since these programs don't preserve the internal linking or separate pages of PDFs.
For a windows computer or tablet, your best bet might be Xodo. However, I'd encourage you to test this out with a sample of the planner.
I have some additional info on app options and a link to grab a free download on this page.
No, these planners won't sync to your calendar or productivity app. The planner itself is a PDF file that you import into a PDF markup app (like GoodNotes 5 or Noteshelf). The app allows you to add notes, text and images. So it functions much more like a paper planner would in the sense that all content you add to a page is static and does not sync between pages or other digital toolsets/apps.
